Scottish comedian, Kevin Bridges, whom Billy Connolly has dubbed as ‘brilliant’ will host the G14 Awards presentation at the London Hilton on Park Lane, London, on Friday 21 November.
Kevin first made his debut at the Edinburgh Playhouse on BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow in 2009 and was an ‘immediate sensation’, selling out his run at the festival in just one day. His rise continued in 2010 when he recorded his debut DVD at a sold-out Glasgow SECC Arena in front of an audience of 10,000. The DVD was released in November 2010 and out-sold Frankie Boyle and Billy Connolly.
In 2011 he became the host of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week and headlined an episode of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow from the Glasgow King’s Theatre. In 2012, he also hosted the long-running series of Live At The Apollo and presented his own six-part documentary, Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story, for BBC1.
His second DVD, Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues, was a top five best seller in 2012 and he had a sell out tour of Australia earlier this year. His autobiography was released in early October and a 2015 tour has just been announced.
Speaking about the confirmation of such a popular new talent, Tony Higgin, organiser of the G14 Awards said: “Kevin Bridges is an exciting young comedian, and promises to entertain in the fashion to which we have become accustomed at the G-Awards. I’m sure our guests will give him as warm a welcome as they have done in previous years.”
